What To Expect

Hong Island Sunset Tour, take you to visit the most beautiful beach and paradise island, Krabi Thailand. The tour will take you to the main island in the Hong Islands group for sightseeing and snorkeling in crystal clear water such as Pakbia Island, Lading Island, Hong Lagoon, Dry off on the white sand beach, and bathing in the warmth of the sunset.

After the other tourists have left you’ll love this magical place, waves lapping gently as the sun goes down. The water is at bath temperature and just begs to be swum in. Sit down and eat a delicious BBQ buffet dinner at the beach. It’s always a fantastic atmosphere. There’s a cool box for cold drinks and some fresh tropical fruit to finish it all off.

After eating, take a moonlit dip in the sea. If you are lucky you may get to see the phosphorescent plankton like fireflies in the water. Even the boat ride back to the pier, watching the light go down over Klong Muang Beach and islands disappearing behind you is a memory of Krabi that you won’t forget for your memorable trip.

Amazing views and bioluminescent snorkeling

The tour was run very well, with a busy itinerary for only a few hours. The viewpoint at Hong Island was incredible, and the snorkeling afterward was very rewarding. The buffet dinner was excellent, and provided great views of the sunset. The bioluminescent snorkeling at the end of the tour was very unique and memorable. My only suggestion would be to have more time on Hong Island before moving to the dinner spot, since it is a great island with lots to do and see.

Great day out

Great guy in charge of the boat. Amazing food on the beach which had really good vegan and vegetarian options. Got to visit some beaches that hadnu2019t been totally smashed to pieces by boats yet. Saw some good fish whilst snorkelling. nBrilliant day out

Tourist trap.

Really looked forward to this trip as the reviews here were positive. But tbh we really had an uncomfortable trip since the boat was stuffed with way to many ppl. The trip to Hong was quite long and when itu2019s so crowded a longtail boat can get really unpleasant. Couldnu2019t move or see anything. So would be fair if they spread the people on more boats for the amount of money people pay. We also had to wait quite long every time (the car pickup, getting on the boat etc) because they had to manage all the people. nnThe u20183 hour stopu2019 at Hong in the info is misleading because we only were there for an hour. Spending 300 bath p.p. For such a short time is a pity. nnHong was a beautiful stop of course. Also the bbq was really good food and the staff was friendly. But we look back at dull and unpleasant transport. nnIMPORTANT SIDENOTE: I saw the staff throwing there cigarettes on the beach. And when you say u2018no smokingu2019 on the boat than be an example also. Iu2019m not even a smoker myself but this really disappointed me. nnLast but not least: My advice would be to book a longtail boat for yourself, itu2019s almost the same price and more spacious. I hope ppl read this review and donu2019t spoil their trip to this beautiful island with this company.

Zero flexibility on the human side.

Although im understanding their 24 hours cancellation policy i'got sick by the day of the tour with the usual asia virus. Woke up with high fever and diarrhea which made me impossible to attend on the tour. I contacted them early morning and explained the situation by asking for any possible workaround to shift the tour by 1 or 2 days. They showed zero flexibility by telling me i should have called a day before when i obviously was not sick yet. Only recommendation was to buy another ticket.nWas very dissapointed as we were looking forward this tour with my wife and was not asking for a cancellation just for a bit of understanding on the situation and give me 1-2 days to feel better.

Great way to spend an afternoon

Our guide DJ was great, really bubbly and informative. Hong island is beautiful and the view point is lovely, it makes you earn you BBQ dinner, the steps are pretty steep and thereu2019s a fair few of them! nThe beach you stop at for the BBQ is pretty and the view of the sunset is great although we had clods when we went but it was still gorgeous.nThe night swim with the bioluminescent plankton was very cool and the water was still surprisingly warm. nIt was a great way to spend an afternoon

Amazing value for an amazing memory and experience

Amazing experience from start to finish, the locations, feel, food and views were all spectacular, We spent a few hours at the beautiful hong island following a sunset bbq at one of the smaller islands, then finally, taking a swim with the plankton! Thank you to pong and his team for the amazing experience and memory!

Excellent Service and Guide

I highly recommend this tour, you not only get to visit some of the most amazing islands of Krabi, but you experience the sea life, great Thai food, superb views and learn about the life around from the Guide. The longtail boat was great, spacious and water and equipment were provided. The night swim to see the luminous plankton was surreal and honestly one of the best experiences I have ever had, at the safety of the crew who were with us all the time. nWe saw sea snake, and some other gorgeous creatures! nHighly recommend this tour! Try it! Great service and crew. nThe price is extremely reasonable too.

Awesomeness at Hong Islands

We went on this tour after having experienced quite alot in Ao Nang / Krabi already. This turned out to be on our top3 list. nnThe guide was great, the trip out was charming in an authentic long tail boat, and the locations were magic. My only complaint here was that their safety rules forced us to swim with life jackets on. Should not be necessary when being a capable adult swimmer... nnThe sunset with a BBQ was the highlight for us, sitting on the beach with grilled seafood and watching a perfect sunset in the horizon. Does not get much better than that. nnAlso, I will thank the tour guides for swift actions when needed. At the very end of the tour, I accidentaly stepped on a quite big stingray and got stung. They immideately transferred me to a nearby speedboat, rushed me to shore, and drove me to a clinic as a precaution in case of emergency. They stayed with me the whole way during treatment of the wound, covered all costs and drove me home. Really good to know that they are capable of handling these situations nnWill recommend them to anyone!

Hong island Sunset is must visit place.

The guide was very friendly. BBQ Dinner was ok and the fruits were good. They served enough water bottles for this trip. boat was in good condition too. It is totally worth it! Cheaper and better than others!

Firman742January 06, 2020

The guides and staff took good care of their customers.

As this is a relatively small group, they tried their best to attend the needs required by different client. BBQ was wonderful as well.nnThank you.

Wonderful staff and service. We will defineteely be back next year!

Everything went perfect. We had a new boat with friendly staff. Even though they havent spoken english very well, we havent had any troubles and could just relax and enjoy. nnApart from visiting stunning places around Hong island and lagoon we had fun jumping in the open sea from the boat, less crowded spot for snorkelling than the others and all the good quality equipment we needed. nnFinally, the peak of the day was outstanding sunset and delicious fresh BBQ on the small empty beach. Wow! That was something that made our trip.
